How to cleanse Kyanite

Kyanite is a blue crystal that is naturally characterized by long white brownish vertical stratification. Kyanite stone belongs to the group of aluminum silicates, characteristic of metamorphic rocks. It often includes traces of different metals, such as:

  • iron
  • chromium
  • calcium
  • magnesium

As it is part of the triclinic crystal system, it sports a scaly fracture, with white streaks or vertical lines and it is distinguished by a polish that can be glassy or pearly which gives a unique appearance to each of its stones.

Kyanite is the stone of intuition, serenity, meditation, and mental quietude. Even though it is typically considered as a self-cleansing crystal which means it doesn’t hold an excessive amount of negative energies, it remains necessary to purify its energy field from time to time just to make sure that you are receiving its tranquilizing healing powers in its purest form.

How to cleanse Kyanite? 3 safe and effective tools

  1. Moonlight

The moonlight is such a refreshing and gentle cleansing stream of energy that will purify your Kyanite crystal from all the accumulated negative and discordant vibrations.


Moonlight will delicately and suitably diffuse all the negative energy that was stored by Kyanite and at the same time, it will reequilibrate and reload the overall soothing healing energies of this stone.

So, to cleanse Kyanite using the Moon energy, place your crystal before nightfall on your windowsill and let it soak the natural light of the moon for the entire night.

Just make sure to place it in a safe place where it can not fall off because we should keep in mind that Kyanite is a delicate crystal that can be damaged pretty easily.

  1. Sage

Sage is a fantastic cleansing medium that not only cleanses Kyanite but also works on purifying your whole living space from clashing and harsh vibrations.


Initiate your cleansing ritual by lightening the smudging stick while envisioning that the smoke generated by the sage is charging your Kyanite crystal with the energy of serenity, harmony, peace, and ultimate balance.

Visualize that the negative energies stored by your Kyanite stone are fading away with the smoke as it disappears into the air.

Let the smoke surround Kyanite for about 30 seconds to one minute.

Important side note:

Don’t forget to open up your windows to let go of the emitted smoke and to also unleash the negative energies carried by the sage fume away from your home.

Important note:

While purifying your crystal you can also charge your stone by repeating positive affirmations, including your preferred intentions to refresh your Kyanite stone with magnetic and pleasant vibrations.

You can visualize that the smoke generated by the smudging stick is also charging your crystal with your chosen intentions and all the sensations that you want to experience.

You can recite the following affirmations/intentions while cleansing Kyanite:

  • I feel balanced.
  • I am aligned with all the things that serve my happiness and inner peace.
  • I express myself with confidence and ease.

One crucial cleansing method to avoid while cleansing Kyanite

Water/getting it wet

Kyanite scores between 4.5 and 7 on Moh’s scale of hardness.

As a general rule when a crystal has a hardness of 5 or below, it is necessary to not get it in contact with water.

In our case and as you can see, Kyanite presents a varied hardness spectrum, which leads us to conclude that some kyanite can be in contact with water and others not (below 5).

But, just to be far from any bad surprise, it is best to not cleanse your Kyanite using the water method and to avoid getting it wet, because water can be potentially damaging to your crystal as it can make it brittle.
